Daily Mail- This is the shocking moment when a window cleaner balancing on a top floor ledge - without ANY safety equipment.
Colin Elliot appears to use only his left hand to cling on to the outside of a third floor flat while wiping the windows with his other hand.
Witnesses said he left the property through the window before carrying out the dangerous task, branding him 'fearless' but 'stupid'.
He said: 'No, I don't use safety equipment - it's not like I do the Empire State Building.'
Mr Elliot said the tallest buildings he works on are three storeys high.
Commenting on those who had questioned his working with no safety equipment, he said: 'It's just from their point of view. I wouldn't recommend they go out on a window ledge.
I understand the concept of being a thrill seeker. I'm not saying I agree with it, or that it's something I am envious of. The most dangerous thing I have ever done is go skydiving with a man that had successfully done it an upwards of a 1,000 times without incident strapped to my back. I do, however, understand that people that don't feel like they are living without some threat of dying do exist. With that said, this window cleaner is literally the worst thrill seeker ever. As far as I am concerned if you intentionally put yourself in harm's way you need to make sure that if harm inevitably does come your way that the impending result is guaranteed death. Imagine a bird knocking this guy of the ledge and falling to a life of paralysis and brain damage? No thanks. Three or four stories is not enough. If I am cleaning windows without a harness we are going at least double digits. This guy seems to think that cleaning windows on the Empire State Building is somehow more dangerous. I would rather do that blindfolded than step on a ledge that doesn't guarantee I see the light when shit goes south. The only way I want to resemble a vegetable is by being buried under the dirt. I have no interest in eating through a straw or depending on others to complete menial tasks. I hope this guy enjoys being the most risqué window cleaner in the world, because disaster waits for no man and the hood of that car below doesn't look all that inviting.
Why is this kid appalled by his actions? No bro. That's not how this works. When someone tempts fate, you root for fate. Especially if you have it on camera. Watching a moronic window cleaner plummet off a building? That's going insta-viral. You're not allowed to be appalled, it's not your life. Now laughing? That's a different story. You are encouraged to laugh. When a person laughs in the grim reaper's face you laugh right on back. The stupidity of others is literally the most humorous thing in the world. The one tragedy in all of this is that when he falls the world will eventually have one less person that it's socially acceptable to laugh at once he gets his wheelchair.

First of all i appreciate the author for taking the effort to share an article about a very good topic. This article throws light on the new film : In Between Black and White!!!. What surprises me is that my favorite star Zara Phillips. who is a singer, song writer, actor and author, is also acting in this.
